It can be difficult for Sheela Awe to have a normal conversation with her 93-year-old grandpa who has Alzheimer’s, but with the power of music, she’s found a stunning way for them to connect.

According to a video she shared on Instagram and TikTok, whenever she’s around her grandpa, he’ll ask her about every 10 minutes who she is and where she’s from. But the moment she starts to play the piano, something magical happens. They don’t speak to one another and, instead, share a beautiful moment of enjoying the melodic sounds of the piano.

“This is us, sharing a moment of happiness,” she said, “where memory doesn’t have to play a part in the experience.”

Watch their special moment below and don’t forget to share.
